Non-compliance with the high-security registration plate (HSRP) norm will attract a fine of Rs 5,000 for private vehicles registered in Noida and Gautam Buddh Nagar, as per a new law that has come into effect from Friday. The HSRP is a unique registration plate that is manufactured using a technology that makes it difficult to tamper with the plate or its number. The government made it mandatory for all commercial and non-commercial vehicles registered after April 1, 2019, to have an HSRP. The last date for installation of HSRP is February 15.

The Gautam Buddh Nagar Traffic police and local police will start a campaign against vehicles that do not have HSRP, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Anil Yadav said. The police will impose a fine of Rs 5,000 on such vehicles. Yadav urged people who have not yet installed HSRP to do so immediately.

The authorities have given a warning to vehicle owners in the wake of the Uttar Pradesh Transport and Road Safety Director Anupam Kulshreshtha’s letter to police chiefs of all 75 districts of the state. The letter stated that not having an HSRP is an offence under the Motor Vehicle Act and can be used in criminal activities.

According to Gautam Buddh Nagar transport department officials, there are over 8.70 lakh registered vehicles in the district, of which around 6 lakhs have the HSRP. It is essential to have an HSRP as it contains unique features like a chromium-based hologram, a permanent identification number, and a laser-branding of the vehicle’s details, making it tamper-proof and difficult to forge.

As per the new rule, the police will start taking strict action against the vehicles that do not have the HSRP in Noida and Gautam Buddh Nagar. The HSRP ensures that the vehicle’s identity is not misused and helps in identifying the vehicle in case of any mishap or criminal activities.

HSRP has been made mandatory to avoid any irregularities or fraudulent activities related to the vehicle’s identification number. Vehicle owners must ensure that they comply with the norms laid down by the government and install the HSRP to avoid being penalized.

The introduction of HSRP is an excellent initiative taken by the government to ensure the safety of the vehicle owners and to prevent the misidentification of vehicles. The HSRP is an important tool that helps in identifying stolen vehicles, which can help the authorities to take quick action against the criminals.

The law ensures that vehicle owners comply with the HSRP installation by imposing a fine on those who fail to do so. Hence, it is essential for vehicle owners to get the HSRP installed immediately to avoid the hefty fine and ensure the safety of their vehicle. The campaign by the police will help to spread awareness among people and encourage them to install HSRP.

Jaipur, Rajasthan: Communal tensions flared up in the Ramganj area and its vicinity in Jaipur, Rajasthan on Saturday, stemming from a tragic incident involving a motorcycle collision that led to a man’s demise.

According to the police, the unfortunate incident occurred at the Subhash Chowk locality in Jaipur. It was reported that after a collision between two motorcycles, a group of men allegedly assaulted one of the riders, resulting in his untimely death.

Late on Friday night, the collision transpired within the Subhash Chowk area, whereupon a group of men accompanying one of the motorcycle riders reportedly subjected the other rider, identified as Iqbal, to a brutal assault. Iqbal sustained severe injuries and was promptly rushed to the SMS Hospital. Tragically, he succumbed to his injuries while receiving medical treatment.

In the aftermath of this distressing incident, numerous shops in the predominantly Muslim-populated areas have been shuttered. Family members of the deceased, along with local residents, have congregated and are now demanding justice and punitive action against those responsible for the attack, as reported by PTI.

To quell the escalating tensions, additional police forces have been deployed in the region, and concerted efforts are underway to defuse the volatile situation, according to statements from the police to PTI.

A purported video of the incident has surfaced on social media platforms, although its authenticity cannot be independently verified at this time.

In a significant development, six individuals have been apprehended in connection with the case. Additionally, authorities have announced compensatory measures for the family of the deceased, as reported by India Today. The publication quoted the Jaipur Administration as stating, “A compensation of Rs 50 lakh, along with employment opportunities and a dairy booth, has been announced for Iqbal’s family. According to police sources, six individuals have been detained in connection with the case.”

Ujjain: The father of the man arrested in connection with the alleged rape of a 12-year-old girl in Ujjain on Friday has called for his son to receive the death penalty. Meanwhile, the local bar association has appealed to lawyers not to defend the accused in court. The victim, a 12-year-old girl, was discovered walking on the city streets in a wounded condition, desperately seeking assistance from passersby who unfortunately turned her away.

The injured girl is currently receiving treatment at the Government Maharaja Tukojirao Holkar Women’s Hospital in Indore, where she underwent a major surgical procedure on Wednesday. A senior state police official has indicated that individuals who failed to assist the young girl when she went from door to door seeking help after the assault, which left her naked and bleeding, could potentially face charges under child sexual abuse laws. Such individuals may be charged under the POCSO Act for failing to report or register the commission of a crime, according to an NDTV report.

Bharat Soni, an auto-rickshaw driver, was taken into custody in connection with the case on Thursday. His father expressed his deep shame over the incident, stating, “It is a disgraceful act. I have not visited the hospital to see him, nor will I go to the police station or court. My son has committed a crime, and he should face the ultimate punishment, which is hanging,” as he conveyed his sentiments to reporters. It should be noted that Soni sustained injuries while allegedly attempting to flee during the investigation, according to the police’s statement on Thursday.

The Congress party has criticized the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh, where assembly elections are scheduled by year-end. Congress spokesperson Supriya Shrinate alleged that the state’s law-and-order situation had significantly deteriorated under the leadership of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

“In Madhya Pradesh, being a Dalit, tribal, or woman has seemingly become a crime. The state ranks highest in cases of minor rape. During Chouhan’s 18-year tenure, there have been 58,000 reported rape cases and 68,000 reported kidnapping cases. Yet, the country’s prime minister, home minister, and all BJP leaders remain conspicuously silent,” Shrinate conveyed to reporters in Delhi.

The distressing incident, captured by a CCTV camera, depicts the 12-year-old girl, partially undressed and bleeding following the assault, desperately seeking assistance from neighbors who callously refused her aid. Furthermore, in a shocking display of heartlessness, one individual can be seen shooing her away as she approaches him for help.

Imphal: Tensions flared in Manipur as an enraged crowd, numbering in the hundreds, gathered outside the private residence of Chief Minister N Biren Singh in the Heingang area of Imphal East. Security forces successfully prevented their attempt to breach the premises, according to PTI sources. Notably, the residence was unoccupied at the time of the incident.

Earlier, the district magistrate of Imphal East had announced a temporary relaxation of movement restrictions, allowing for a window between 5 am and 11 am on Friday for the entire district. However, this relaxation coincided with a fresh outbreak of violence in the Imphal Valley, stemming from the tragic deaths of two youths whose images had triggered widespread protests across the northeastern state.

The parents of the deceased youths had appealed to the authorities to locate their children’s remains, underscoring the importance of conducting their final rites with the dignity they deserved. Subsequently, protests erupted, mainly led by students, in various areas of the state capital, including Uripok, Yaiskul, Sagolband, and Tera. The clashes between protesters and security personnel prompted the use of tear gas shells to maintain order.

To impede the advance of security forces into residential areas, demonstrators obstructed roads with burning tires, boulders, and iron pipes. Additionally, an enraged mob vandalized the District Commissioner’s office and set two vehicles on fire. In a separate incident, a BJP office in Khongjam, Thoubal district, was also set ablaze, as reported by the police.

Subsequently, curfew was reinstated in both Imphal East and West districts as security forces grappled with the ongoing violent protests, which had resulted in injuries to 65 demonstrators since Tuesday. Police initiated a search operation to recover stolen firearms and apprehend those responsible for the disturbances.

The Manipur Police issued a statement asserting their commitment to taking stern action against individuals involved in criminal activities.
